“Wonderful bed, breakfast and dinner!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2012

I found this a very clean and comfortable place to stay, and I can be a little fussy! I felt at home as soon as I arrived, and the food was delicious! I fully recommend others to stay and take advantage of this quaint home - the hosts are very welcoming and interesting people to meet.

Thank you for your review, these our very valuable to us as a business. Kelvin and I both enjoyed your visit and even more special to have a Scottish guest as of course Blairgowrie House is named after the small town Blairgowrie in Scotland, where the original owners (1916) Grandparents lived.

Hubby and I have returned home from two nights stay at Blairgowrie. We were 3 couples who descended upon Annette, Kelvin & Frodo Friday night as we were celebrating my birthday. Annette surprised me with a lovely HAPPY BIRTHDAY banner, cheese & crackers, chippies & warm snacks. The decor was just as lovely as the website depicted. Hubby LOVED the Man Cave & we both adored Frodo the friendly kitty. Annette & Kelvin have it all down to a fine art. Manicured lawns, spotless accommodation & many little extras, not to mention scrumptious breakfasts. They both allowed us the perfect mix of being around when we needed them for a chat or advice on places to eat & visit, but also leaving us to our own devices. The feeling that we were invading someones home quickly disappeared and we settled in for a relaxing weekend. Even my not very easily impressable husband was impressed and has informed me that he would go back there to stay. I am already looking for an excuse to go back!

Room Tip: If you want a deck then choose the Tulip or Chocolat rooms

We stayed recently and can honestly say, that due to husband's career we have lived in 11 countries and stayed in a lot of holiday accommodation and Blairgowrie House has to top the list. Quite splendid: comfortable, pristine, exquisite decor and charming hosts. They've thought of absolutely everything to make your stay unforgettable. Di F

Room Tip: The Chocolate Room easily accessible from the entrance.

Hi Di Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Kelvin and I enjoyed hosting you both even though it was so short and no time to view the 'Man Cave'. We look forward to another visit when you have the time to wander through the shed filled with vintage machinery and collections of all the unexpected!!

I spent a very beautiful staying at Blairgowrie B&B. The house is very nice, very comfortable and their owners are very kind people. I strongly recommend you to visit this B&B if you are going to New Zeeland. You will stay in an awesome place near to Hobitton, springs and a lot of breathtaking landscapes.

Room Tip: The Chocolate room is incredible!

We were 3 couples who stayed at Blairgowrie House during the weekend. What a joy. Sumptuous accommodation for the ladies and the delight for the chaps was Kelvin, our host's fine array of machinery....and not just ordinary machinery. He kept the men happy for quite some time. Every room was delightful and no-one felt they had the 'better or lesser room'. We highly recommend Annette and Kelvins kind hospitality and lovely environment.

I am very picky about the accommodations I stay at. I was quite nervous to stay here, as there are so few reviews, but that nervousness was quickly cleared upon seeing the property and our room. My husband and I stayed in the Chocolate Suite. It was very nice and clean. We were disappointed that we arrived late in the evening at the property and did not have any more time to spend, other than the one short night. The owners were very friendly and made us feel welcome. Breakfast was good and consisted of toast, muffins, fresh fruit, cereal, and assorted beverages (coffee, hot chocolate, tea, etc.). It was an easy drive to the house from Auckland and to the Waitomo glow worm caves.
